I have had a server running Red Hat 9 working fine. I have now done a fresh install of Fedora Core 1 though. After this my networking on that computer is not working. I have a standard 10/100 ethernet card and I set it to the correct IP address, the subnet address of 255.255.255.0 and the gateway address of the IP of our Smoothwall router/firewall.
The interface is active, although I can not ping anything. When I ping it says host unreachable. I also can not do any other network activity such as Apache/Samba/web browsing.
The Smoothwall box also has DHCP running so I tried changing the settings for the network to use the DHCP, when I did this I recieved a message that said can not recieve an IP address from the DHCP server.
I checked the network card and the connection light is on, and everytime it pings it blinks the activity light. I have tried changing cables out with no luck also.
I also turned the iptables firewall off and tried pinging the Fedora computer from another computer on the network with no luck.
Thanks in Advance

I thought I would look through the BIOS and I noticed that the monitor on the -5VDC line read -66VDC. We then started checking it and there is a red light on the motherboard too. So I believe it may be a hardware problem after all. The interesting thing to note though is this server was up 148 days, started up on July 21st before I decided to go install Fedora. I will post back tomorrow with my results.
